TI, dye-sensitized solar cell maker team up on self-powered devices

May 27, 2011 — G24 Innovations (G24i), dye sensitized solar cell technology (DSSC) provider, and Texas Instruments (TI, NY:TXN) will combine G24i’s solar cell technology with TI’s nano-powered energy converter under a new strategic development agreement. Their aim is autonomous self-powering devices for OEMs, including computer mice, keyboards, intelligent sensors, and more.

G24i’s Gen-3 DSSC technology is an efficient indoor energy harvesting system. Combined with TI’s technology, it promises devices will have better energy efficiency, and standby power for industrial and home automation uses, said Richard Costello, chief operating officer at G24i. The increased device energy efficiency and lower carbon footprint is possible because of the combined light energy and energy harvesting capabilities, added Martin Carpenter, business development manager at Texas Instruments.
